The one

I was having my me-time with Abba when some verses of the scripture I read made me blush because in some way I could relate with it. And then I had the nudge to pen it down.

Smiles, I believe in our search for “the one” we might have been told that when the right person shows up that “you’d know”.

A quick detour or maybe a quick insight or an experience sharing moment, from my end.

I remember when I was in my waiting period and it felt like all the “good people” that were approaching and were serious with me, was a “No” whenever I sought God’s face on it.

It was always painful to let go. Sincerely! And when you visit social media and you are seeing several relationship status updates, you are reminded that you are still on the “waiting” mode. 😢

So yeah during these period, God was my emotion filter and I couldn’t have survived these emotional flux without Him. And that’s why for me “God is my foremost blessing in life”. Because through Him, more blessings have come forth. 🙌🏼

Waiting Period

In-between this season of my life, even when it felt like the wait was just not going to end soon. God would remind me that when it was time, that I would know. It was His usual reminder for me when I inquire about anything relationship, that “you’ll know”. And on some days because I can be very inquisitive, I would ask more questions or pray that He gives me specifics on who the person was. But heck, I didn’t get that.

So yeah we stuck with “you’ll know”, and when I decide to make up clues for myself, by thinking through it – analyzing the people I had around me or assessing those who were asking me for a relationship, I am always reminded to give up such thoughts and just choose to rest in the knowing that I will know when he shows up.

Fast forward to the ending of 2020. Did I know it was him at first… No actually, because at that time, my mind was on someone else. I was ready to retire and settle with this person just because we got along well. 😂

But thank God for God really. He is such a good father, He called me out one afternoon and told me to exercise caution – in His words “Beware”.

I didn’t fully understand what this meant but I know a part of it was to read between the lines with this person and see beyond the emotions that was already building up. So yes, I slowed down. Heck it wasn’t an easy sweet sail at first. 😂 But thank God, I was able to eventually. And after sometime because of some things I discovered, I knew it wasn’t it. I was back to my “let me just build friendship” mode with the guys in my life – my hubby, inclusive.

And as time passed, I knew. Smiles. 😂

Okay let me be serious. 🙈

I knew because my being had peace and aside that, God gave me refresher courses in-between my conversation with him (my hubby). And these refresher courses was God’s way of reminding me what He had told me at one point or the other, regarding “the person”.

At rest in God

Trust me the clues wasn’t something serious or so detailed compared to what I had read or heard from people’s love stories. Which is why trusting God and truly resting in Him is key. He brought these clues into play, one after the other. It would either come up in our conversation or a scenario that had happened with him that he was sharing.

So yes, did I know. Yes I knew eventually and I couldn’t have, without God’s help.

Love story

So as much as God is telling you “You’ll know” or “Rest dear daughter/son”, it’s important to stay up to date with Him. Don’t stop at knowing these words, let Him help you link up these words to your reality when the time comes.

You don’t need a whole essay on who he or she will be. All you need is God in the process of your choosing him or approaching her. 😊

I rest my case. 🙌🏼

I pray that we will trust God enough even when it seems like the clues He is giving you doesn’t add up right now. 🙏🏻

Don’t forget that these clues are for a set time. Don’t be so much in a haste to miss out on the fun. 🤩

Alpha and Omega

I pray for you that you would have a blessed and fruitful new week. 🙏🏻

You are Loved and He is always beckoning on you “come dear daughter/son”. ❤️

““Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Come to me. I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis. Simply join your life with mine. Learn my ways and you’ll discover that I’m gentle, humble, easy to please. You will find refreshment and rest in me. For all that I require of you will be pleasant and easy to bear.””

Matthew 11:28-30 TPT

Enjoy God’s blessings this new week. 🤗

    It was a good read… Thank you for sharing this experience. I think I have to understand that waiting on God and dwelling in His Word will help get it right. Through your experience, I can tell that we’re able to desolve all doubts using God’s Word… I choose to depend on Him, His Word and Spirit.
